Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.


As it's the 1st of the month it's time for a new challenge over at


The challenge runs till the 29th of November 2020.

I am hosting this time around and I would like to see

Christmas Flowers

on your creations please. 

So here is my card I made for my DT.


This is a 8"x8" tent style card I made from kraft card.

All the dies used are Tattered Lace.

I distressed the edges of the matt layer kraft card, and then added the Imagination Crafts Snow Paste and the Creative Expressions Glitter Jewels Iced Snow .

I decided to use up some old Metalic Mesh to my my background, I wound some ribbon around an old foam tape roll that was used up.

My poinsettias I cut out of plain white card and I sprayed them with Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle Pearl Diamond. 

Then I added some gold beads for the centres.

Merry Christmas sentiment is a MDF one bought from the Works last year.


Please pop over to the challenge blog to see the lovely creations made by my DT Friends

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
